You get what you pay for,
This review is from: Winter in Venice - Blueberry Basket - Pamper Gift Set (Personal Care)
Having purchased this item for my mum at Christmas, i was rather unhappy about the way in which this item had arrived. When i took it out of the amazon box, i could see that the item had leaked a little inside it's packaging, making the white paper look oilly and unclean. On the whole the presentation wasnt particularly bad, but it wasnt anything special.
Taking it out of it's plastic i got the stuff on my hands, and the smell of it is quite overpowering. It smells of chemicals and is fairly strong. Not something i can imagine she wants to smell whilst taking a relaxing bath. It would do for a quick once over the in the shower but i would not want to 'pamper' myself with this stuff.
The bathball is not very soft, made of a strange plastic foam not dissimilar to polystyrene in touch. This bathball has been squashed in a permanant position because of the bad packaging. Hopefully that will change once it gets a bit wet. Overall, i'd say it will do because i can't be bothered to return it, but my first impressions are stay away unless you cant find a better alternative.
